After a successful career producing some of the biggest studio films of the late 50s, Albert Zugsmith decided to follow his passion for directing. His extensive and extremely diverse body of work combined art film pretention with drive-in sleaze, resulting in thoroughly unique hybrid projects. Vinegar Syndrome presents two of his most sought-after films completely uncut!
ON HER BED OF ROSES (1966)
A deranged sniper shoots at cars on a freeway, only to commit suicide as the police close in. In a series of flashbacks, the people who knew this disturbed young man reflect on what might have caused him to embark on his deadly rampage. Directed by Albert Zugsmith (Confessions of an Opium Eater), On Her Bed of Roses is an odd blending of post-noir, Vietnam era character drama and drive-in sleaze. Presented here in its rarely seen international ‘hot’ version and restored from the original 35mm negative.
THE INCREDIBLE SEX REVOLUTION (1965)
A young woman relays her sexual hang-ups to her psychiatrist. As her problems play out in flashbacks, the psychiatrist shares stories of historical sex, leading up to an orgiastic conclusion.
